I think I’ve stated it a few times that I happen to be a chick. So, that shouldn’t be a surprise. It also shouldn’t come as a surprise that I don’t have any bromances. I’m sure I’ll live. I even went to Urban Dictionary to make sure I knew exactly what it means, because I wasn’t sure if it meant what I thought it did. It does. Basically, it just comes down to being best friends. Nothing romantic, despite the term. The term is attributed to Dave Carnie who wrote for Big Brother magazine. So, there’s your etymology tidbit for the day. Bromance Calculator takes the names of two guys and calculates the density of bromance between them.
I started mashing together random guys in my address book. Apparently, I shouldn’t be introducing them to each other, because their compatibility just reeked. Interestingly, when I started throwing brothers in together, the results were awesome. I’m not sure if that speaks to some subliminal bond that most don’t acknowledge or if it’s a major design flaw. All right, I know that it’s just a game and all. I’m just joking around.
Basically, I just have to laugh that a Bromance Calculator exists. It’s not something that I thought guys would care about in the least. Not even to mess around with for a few laughs. I know silly compatibility quizzes exist in fashion magazines. I mean, I do have some guilty pleasures and all, but I didn’t expect this. So, I’m left wondering: Do guys actually care about bromances? I wouldn’t know firsthand, and I’m curious.
